Welcome to RareCoordinator

The main purpose of this addon is to keep track of the rare spawns on the Timeless Isle.

Features:

  • Only visible on the Timeless Isle
  • Communicates with everyone of your faction on your realm to keep the data updated
  • As soon as you get on the Isle it will update itself
  • When you get a "rare alive" message a sound message will inform you
  • If you have TomTom installed an Arrow will guide you to the rare
  • Click on the "alive" message to announce the rare spawn in the General Chat

Where does it get the data?

  • As soon as you or someone on your faction with the addon target a rare mob the addon updates the "last seen" message
  • If a rare mob is killed and anyone with the addon is near, the "last killed" message gets updated

    Quick question.

    Sometimes when I log into another character not on Timeless Island and back to the one on Timeless Island, the time list resets. Sometimes it doesn't .... wondering what may be causing this and if there's a way to get it to stop resetting.

    Thanks for a great addon.

    Is there anyway to make a setting so the thing doesn't popup every time you login on the island or go to the island? I know its there, I don't need this huge window to pop up blocking other things that I have to manually close. I often have logged in on the island just to see a rare right behind the tent but because of the huge addon in my face, can't see the target to click on it.

    Why have we removed the coordinates from the public messages? People not using the addon see the unhelpful messages like "varied spawn in/around the forest/west coast" or "swims around the island" and then ask questions. The purpose of this style of addon should be to provide less vague information to non-addon users.

    Luckily I haven't run into the "someone set a password on the addon channel" issue myself, but I thought of one naive option you might try. Players are limited to 10 channels so the griefer cannot ruin too many channels at once. If you simply use a backup system where the addon attempts to join RareCoordinator1 then 2 if that doesn't work then 3 etc until it finds an open channel, would that not avoid the trouble? Even with multiple griefers working together to lock out as many channels as possible, I see no reason the addon couldn't quickly try hundreds of them until it gets to a good one! It could also periodically "rescan" the possible channels so that if a lower one is vacated, it drops down to that one to avoid duplication.

    Just wanted to let you know I wrote a macro to pick a random person in the addon's channel and SendAddonMessage them for an update. This way if the channel owner is giving bad data it will bypass them. It can also be used if for some reason the addon does not request data on its own, for instance I sometimes use it if I have to reload my UI on the Timeless Isle.

    I posted the macro code in the comments on the RC curse page. It's relatively quick and dirty (and compressed to fit under 255) but I've used it with success for a few weeks now. I think it's helpful for your users until you have time to build that feature in yourself, but let me know if you'd prefer I delete the comment.

    Thanks for the addon!

    Love the addon, but hit the resize button and now it's HUGE, and the button to resize it is somewhere off the screen with no way to scroll down. Tried deleting and reloading it, but no luck. :( Sad me. I love this addon.
